We were expecting 2000 new pets today!
Before they arrived, the kids helped me shred and cut paper to make them a nice bed.
This guy supervised.
Next we piled our shredded paper into a bucket and filled it with water.
We squished and squashed the paper, making sure it was nice and wet all the way through.
Then we wrung out hand fulls of this paper pulp.
We thought it ended up looking rather pretty!
It also ended up being a great tactile activity. Right up Kian's alley.
Once wrung out, our paper balls were carefully separated back into strips(ish) and placed in our pets' box.
And finally, after arriving in the mail, our new pets were lovingly placed in their new home, on their nice, wet bed of paper mulch.
They were also loved on a bit too.
And may I add, I love that my kids love on worms.
We are excited to be vermicomposting once again!
